Product Description

From the Inside Flap

From the authors who accurately predicted the domino fall of the conjoined real estate, stock, and private debt bubbles that led to the financial crisis of 2008 and 2009, now comes the definitive look at what is still ahead in 2012 and beyond—and what investors can do right now to protect themselves.

Based on the authors' unmatched track record of precise predictions in the two landmark books America's Bubble Economy and Aftershock, this Second Edition of Aftershock updates the original book by more than 35 percent with fresh analysis of the latest economic developments, plus offers new in-depth advice for how readers can prepare now for protection and profits in the next global money meltdown.

The second edition of Aftershock shows readers:

  • Why the latest actions by the U.S. Federal Reserve will eventually damage the dollar and hurt investors worldwide

  • How future rising inflation and interest rates will harm your specific investments, and what to do about it

  • The future fall of China's bubble economy, as well as current and future problems with European debt

  • Detailed investment advice about real estate, retirement, annuities, life insurance, and much more

  • What's next for stocks, bonds, currencies, commodities, and other assets

  • How to buy and own gold and silver before, during, and after the coming Aftershock

From the Back Cover

Recovery? What Recovery?

Did you lose money in the stock market in the last financial crisis of late 2008?Has your home lost value? Are you "underwater" in your mortgage or concerned about selling?
Do your dollars buy less than they used to at the grocery store and the gas pump?
Have you lost your job or know someone who did?
Are you worried about the safety of your money and investments?

Don't Get Fooled Again!

While the "experts" want us to believe that all is well (or will be soon), nothing could be further from the truth. The worldwide financial crisis of 2008 and 2009 was just a sneak preview of what is to come. For those who act quickly and correctly, there is still time to protect yourself, your family, and your business in the next global money meltdown. Updated and fully revised, this Second Edition of the Wall Street Journal business bestseller Aftershock can help you:

  • Protect and grow your assets before, during, and after the next global financial crisis

  • Spot and cash in on the best new investment opportunities

  • Know which jobs, careers, and business sectors will fare the best

  • Profit rather than lose when asset bubbles collapse around the world

From the reviews of the critically acclaimed First Edition:

"Their scenario is dark, and their strategies bold and unconventional. But after being on target the last time they went against the grain, the Wiedemers merit being heard out."
The Associated Press

"Surrounded as we are by growing talk of recovery and news about 'green shoots,' it's still refreshing to consider the different perspective that Wiedemer, Wiedemer, and Spitzer offer here."
Robert J. Hughes, SmartMoney

"Aftershock makes a compelling argument for a chilling conclusion. Their track record demands our attention."
Sam Stovall, Chief Investment Strategist, Standard & Poor's

"The fragility of today's economy demands that we, as investors, allocate our assets with more prudence and focus than ever before. The authors' prescience in their first book lends credence to their new warnings. This book deserves our attention."
Robert Friedman, former CFO, Goldman Sachs

"Their first book, America's Bubble Economy, was one of those rare finds that not only predicted the subprime credit meltdown well in advance, it offered Main Street investors a winning strategy. Now they've done it again."
Paul B. Farrell, JD, PhD, Senior Columnist, Dow Jones/MarketWatch

Format: Hardcover
This book is a real eye opener. It's a counter view of the future to those "experts" who missed the 2008 crash. An entirely different paridgm of looking at things to come. I hope they are not right but they make a strong case that they are. In that they accurately predicted the 2008 meltdown in a previous book, one would be wise to consider what they say. They make useful suggestions of how to protect oneself financially from the coming "aftershock". Well written.

It's a good analysis of the current economic trends. I personally feel uncomfortable when they praise themselves, and they do that all the time in this book. But other than that, it's ok.

Writers are pompous, but may be correct. If you print too much money, inflation will occur. Their premise is correct, but not necessarily the timing. basically, they are saying, buy gold in 2014ish until the next coming storm passes. It's a flight to quality play. They might be correct. Don't need to buy the book, but one might want to pay attention as economic times are changing to a whole new demension not one of us has thought of yet. short term (2-5 years, these guys are correct).

The authors base this book on their 2006 book which correctly predicted the 2008 financial market meltdown. They offer a different, more stark view of the next two to four years in the USA. They are not the cheerleaders that the rest of the financial market is giving us about a recovery. They should be taken seriously for their contrarian view. There are suggestions about how to ride out the bumpy road that they see coming. All those interested in investing should read it.

Well thought out and timely, this book systematically addresses the major economic problems that we will sooner or later have to face up to. While making the future still look bright, the authors slowly dismantle the present in a way that is hard to argue against. I truly hope the transition won't be a nightmare and will be slow enough to allow those who are prepared to make some adjustments, but if history is any indicator...

I ordered this book and it exceeded my expectations. It is an incredible analysis of the current American and Global Economies. Excellent recommendations. It is not complicated and very easy to follow and understand. I was left curious to know which chapter was left out of the Version 1 of this book. Perhaps the Appendix? If you read V1 of this book, you should also get V2.
